Aunty Del has pneumonia. She is not good. The vet has done as much as he can. Now we wait.

He could not tell for sure if the calf is still alive. Usually with such a high temperature the cow will abort. But the calf is definitely way back and still there.

So now we wait. If the drugs are going to work her temperature will be down by at least two degrees by morning. I will let you know.

We don’t know why she is sick though and I don’t like that.

What a mess.

  9. I’m so sorry. I hope the drugs can bring the fever down. Wishing you all the best — what a terrible situation.

  10. Poor girl…. animals always soldier on so stoically, being unable to tell you when they start to feel unwell. She’s a big, strong cow, and I hope that her good diet and the care and love she’s always received will stand her in good stead. C’mon, Aunty Del. Fight this thing!

  11. What a sad state of affairs! That explains why Aunty has been dragging around lately. Isn’t she the one who was so confused in the wind the other day? Horrible headaches often precede human pneumonia. Don’t know about animals! My thoughts and prayers for a good outcome are headed your way.

  12. Positive thoughts and prayers – for Mom-to-be, babe and you . . . this you didn’t need . . .

  13. The hardest part is not knowing the cause… and then the waiting. Like everyone else here, I’m praying and sending positive vibes… and lots of love.

  14. Absolutely beautiful closeup of her. I hope she will be okay. Very worrying for you but great that you noticed so quickly she was not well.

  15. Adding extra prayers and positive thoughts for Aunty Del and calf, I always keep you, the Farmy and the Fellowship in my prayers. With the weather as strange as it’s been she likely got a chill. I hope the medications help and the calf is okay too. Aunty Del is such a beautiful cow and a sweet soul.
